Join us for a fantastic evening on Zoom with stunning imagery where Jordan discusses his methods and techniques to truly capture the essence of his surroundings. And how he manages to produce concise, emotional, and thought provoking images to tell the story of the people and places he is photographing.

Hi All,

I thought last nights presentation by Ollie was excellent. His hard work certainly paid off with some of the best night images I’ve seen for a very long time.

Please remember to upload your images for the upcoming Annual Exhibition and the PDI of the year. Details shown below.

You can enter up to 6 images into the Annual Exhibition, which should be 1920 x 1080 maximum in jpeg and no bigger than 5MB. They can be of any subject and in mono or colour. The deadline for entries is Thursday 28th May.

Please note that you should enter in the class you are in for PDIs – that is, if you are in Advanced for prints and Intermediate for PDIs – you enter in Intermediate. The exhibition will be judged – you can find the list of awards on the previous Annual Exhibition post https://chichestercameraclub.org.uk/annual-exhibition-2021/. The special award for photographs taken in a 10 mile radius of the centre of Chichester must be of a recognisable location but otherwise can be of any subject. That is for instance, an image of the Bishop’s Garden can be entered, a single flower in the garden can’t.

Everyone is guaranteed that at least one of their submitted images will be included in the exhibition. While there is no requirement to make your entries into a panel (that is, work out how the images sit best next to each other) and unlike for the print exhibition we cannot accept suggested hanging plans from you this year, it will be very helpful in making the overall exhibition look good if you can think about submitting images that work sympathetically together.

This year’s PDI of the Year Competition will be judged by Clive Tanner FRPS MPAGB APAGB. This year we will be returning to the normal format of having the PDI judged as part of the judging of the Annual Exhibition, which Clive is also judging for us.

You can upload your entries at the normal place:

http://www.photocompentries.net/?org=chichestercc

The competition is open to all classes and each member may enter up to two entries. Each entries must have already been judged in a PDI competition in this season (2020-2021). So all you have to do is select your two favourite entries and upload them.

Entries must be in by end of day 28th of May 2021.

Finally, I hope to see as many of you as possible at our last meeting this season when James Kerwin will be giving his presentation entitled ‘Sands of Time’.

Take care

Mike

Membership subscription for next season, 2021/22

For those of you who were unable to attend the AGM this is an outline of the details for paying your membership fee for next season.

The good news is that the subs will remain at £63 for this year, rather than the usual addition of a £1 each year. Payment is due on the 15th July and we would be grateful if you could do this between 1st and 15th July and no earlier. If this would cause you a problem please be in touch by email at membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk and we can make a separate arrangement.

I shall send out an email as usual, probably in June, with payment details. As usual payment can be made by bank transfer or cheque sent to the membership secretary but we obviously won’t be available to accept cash this year.

If you do not intend to renew your membership, and I hope this won’t be the case, then please let me know as soon as possible so that we can take on new members this summer. We have spare capacity in the club at the moment so please encourage friends, family or interested parties to be in touch with me via the website membership link.

Unfortunately If we have not heard from you by 31st July then your membership will cease, although I will be contacting any late payers as usual.

Meanwhile have a good summer and enjoy meeting up with old friends.

A great result and congratulations to all who entered images.

Please don’t forget that the closing date for entries into the PDI of the year and the Annual Exhibition is 28/05/21 so make sure you enter.

We all know that a club stands or falls on its volunteers and we need two to manage the Print and Digital groups next season so if you are interested please contact me at ‘chair@chichestercameraclub.org.uk‘.

Looking forward to seeing you next week when we are in the company of Oliver Taylor for his presentation entitled ‘A Journey into Darkness – A Decade of Nightscapes’.

Take care.

RPS Doc GroUp SE Sunday 23rd May 2021 11:00AM

This RPS Zoom meeting is in 2 parts: in the first half Dr Preston will speak to us about research & execution strategies (see below) and in the second half there will be an opportunity for up to 3 members to offer one of their ongoing projects for discussion and feedback from fellow members and the speaker.

Rivers, Trees, Journeys – Yan Wang Preston
Dr Yan Wang Preston, will discuss research and execution strategies for long-term photographic projects. She will use two of her own projects as case studies: for Mother River (2011-2014), she photographed the entire 6,211km Yangtze River in China at precise 100km intervals. For Forest (2010-2017), she followed the adaptation journeys of transplanted old trees in new Chinese cities. Both projects have won major awards, shown internationally and published extensively. Dr Preston will focus on a holistic research approach termed as Deep Mapping, in which contextual and historical research, technical experiments and a bodily intervention within the landscape all contribute to generate new artistic insights.Dr Preston – Biog
Dr Yan Wang Preston is a British-Chinese artist interested in landscape, ecology and identity. Her long-term projects, Mother River and Forest, won major awards including the 1st Prize, Professional Landscape, Sony World Photography Awards 2019.
